4 Ways Technology Can Help You Figure Out Your Actual Size


How It Works: Upload two photos of yourself—front and profile—wearing a tank top and a bra that you usually wear. ThirdLove’s iOS app will determine your optimum bra style, band size, and cup size.

True Fit

How It Works: You’ll find the True Fit clothing-size finder on many major retailers’ sites (Nordstrom, Macy’s, Ann Taylor). It uses your height, weight, and body shape to give you a personalized size and fit rating (excellent fit, good fit, not recommended) for most types of garments.


How It Works: The site determines your “Fitcode” number by taking into consideration your jean size and hip, thigh, and bottom shapes—no measurements needed. Then it presents you with denim options that will best fit your body and a video of an actual person with your Fitcode trying on each pair. Once you’ve made your pick, Fitcode provides a link to purchase the jeans on a retailer’s website.

Rent the Runway

How It Works: Thanks to a robust customer-review community, the site and the app allow you to see what other women with similar measurements look like in the site’s rentable designer dresses. Even better, you can have an extra size sent to you at no charge.
